Unread post by xantiagreen »

How do I post photos, they are 34kb each or less, but keep getting a message "Board quota reached" everytime in the last couple of weeks. I checked online and someone had changed their setting and was then able to upload.

Thanks in advance.

While it can be convenient to add a photo as an attachment, as you have found there is a limit.

Personally I never bother but use one of several photo hosting sites.
Flickr!
PhotoBucket
ImageShack
Imgur
Picasa
Amomg others.
Most ISPs have a free photo hosting option
Are all OK, Imgur being probably the simplest to use. All are free and have a Pro (paid for) alternative if required.

Run into the forum attachment limit ? Join the club. :mrgreen:

Surprisingly considering how many images I attach its taken me 8 years to reach the quota. :lol:

I use dropbox for images now as I already had an account and can get a direct image link to embed the image seamlessly into the message rather than linking to an external site.
